7 years

Today marks 7 years when my mother passed away. 
I woke up this morning and my stomach just hurt, which led to an “off” day for me today. I went to the workout at GPP but just went through the movements, didn’t really push myself to hard, I just couldn’t shake the feeling. Every year, since my mom passed away my sisters/family meet at her grave at 5 pm because that is the time she passed away. It was my week to teach body pump so I couldn’t be there today. After pump I went for a run. My favorite run course actually passes the cementary where she is buried, so on my way back I made sure to sit and spend a little time to reflect on her life and my favorite moments with her.
Due to my “off” day, I didn’t take any pictures of anything today… besides this beautiful sunset.
Purple and pink filled the sky and I was able to catch the very end of it.
I never get sick of Bountiful sunsets. They are always stunning and today it made me smile.
I spent the last hour watching womens Gymnastics! Congrats USA!!!
It’s a new day tomorrow!
Have a good night!
